The Shoyoroll Gi Healthy Way of Life in BJJ
I think that everyone should have some sort of healthy hobby that they do weekly. I think you should do something that you enjoy, get exercise with, and is a way of life. There are many things that you can find, that you can do for a very long time. I mean something that you can start as a kid and still be doing until you are a grandparent. That is a healthy way of living and a good hobby to have in your life. Everyone out there does not always have a hobby or activity that they do for fun. I do not understand why they do not either. There are so many things to do out there. I got really lucky when I was younger because I found BJJ. It has changed my life forever in a good way.
I was in college and I was searching for a new activity to do. I have always loved being active and was getting bored with just jogging or lifting weights. I wanted something different but still fun to do. Then in one of my classes I had a professor tell the class about a martial art that he taught on campus. He said it was like wrestling and was not like karate at all. So after class I went up to him and he gave me more details about the martial art. So I found time to watch a class and that is all I needed for the addiction to kick in. I was hooked the very first time that I saw BJJ in action.
It was not long after that class I started regularly attending his class. The first things that I needed though was a gi. My college professor was so cool that he gave me a Shoyoroll gi. At the time, I did not know that was one of the best gis you can get on the market. I still have that gi to this day. It is my favorite gi.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a very practical martial art. It is not like the others where everything works in theory. You try this in live action and it still works! One thing that I found out about it, though, is that it is not for everyone. This is an intense martial art, but it is one that I needed in my life. If you have never checked it out, I recommend you found a school and watch one class!
